Do you enjoy eating food? If that is a “yes” then this is the tool for you! A durable set of utensils housed in a mesh bag, durable and ready to go. Grab this Baladeo cutlery kit from Each piece of this cutlery kit will become your best friend whether eatinghallway pie with your buddies, eating sand at your favorite park, munching down on some lightweight convenient Wise Foods or to digging into your favorite dutch oven cuisine. Its lightweight compact design makes it perfect for any outing, whether climbing, fast packing, backpacking or car camping. Actually, you may find a strangely large number of uses for this cutlery kit. The knife is a good back up for a sharp edge in case your main knife is lost or fails in some way. And for you germaphobes, here is a great idea! If you would rather not roll the communicable parasite dice then fear not, this Baladeo cutlery kit is small enough to fit in your pocket. You can pack it up and bring it to your favorite, but maybe less than hygienic, eatery and survive to eat there again!

If you just want to show off your complete awesomeness to your brother-in-law, gear-geekfreak friend, other campers attempting the plastic knife meets steak game, or that special like minded someone, you’ll be in need of the Baladeo cutlery set. Show up and pull this bad boy Baladeo Cutlery Kit out and everyone will know you mean business. This practical and beautiful cutlery kit has ability to open bottles for those who haven't yet embraced the twist off, or have hands too blown up and sore from rock climbing all day. I also discovered on further investigation this Baladeo Cutlery Kit also features the ability to open cans of food for those of us who haven't quite adopted the dried foods for their camping adventures. The Baladeo knife line is well known for their quality, durability and long lasting sharpness. The knife included in this kit is certainly no different. The Baladeo Cutlery kit knife and spork are made of 100% 420 martensitic stainless steel for food contact (martensitic steel complies with EN10088-2 2005). The knife is very sharp and will basically cut through or annihilate anything you want.

Now as we all know the spork is a wonderful invention. Baladeo subscribed to the old adage “Don’t fix what isn’t broken”, in the case of the spork included in this kit. But, they did add the cool ability to nest the knife and spork together, further adding to the convenience of this already compact and lightweight (52 grams or 1.8 ounces). Enough said. It’s deep enough for enjoying soup, but yet tough enough for that steak, all wrapped up in a neat and tidy package.

I only have one complaint. The zipper pull for the case busted, no, exploded into three pieces. But if you’re anything like me, you’ll be replacing the zipper pull with 550 paracord anyways, so no big deal. In short, if you eat food, want to impress anyone, make others envious of you, or, just need an ass kicking campingutensil, this is one to get!
